Invited Lecturers:

**Eduardo Pontón** (ICTP-SAIFR/IFT-UNESP, Brazil) – Particle physics

In these six lectures we will cover the fundamental facts underlying modern particle physics. Assuming that students are familiar with special relativity and the covariant notation, we will present the necessary concepts of field theory that allow us to formulate the Standard Model (SM) of Elementary Particles. Special emphasis will be placed on the role of symmetries, its uses and applications in particle phenomenology. The essential aspects for both Abelian and non-Abelian gauge theories will be studied. We will also describe the current situation after the discovery of the Higgs boson. Finally, the remaining questions left open by the SM will be presented and, time permitting, some ideas for how to address them will be described.

**Maria Concepción González-García** (Stony Brook University, USA) – Neutrino physics

These lectures are a theoretical introduction to the phenomenology of massive neutrinos. First I will present the low energy formalism for adding neutrino masses to the Standard Model and the induced leptonic mixing, and then I will describe the phenomenology associated with neutrino oscillations in vacuum and in matter. I will also present the most relevant experimental results and the present determination of neutrino masses and leptonic mixing emerging from the global description of this data in terms of oscillations. Finally, time allowing, I will briefly discuss some other signatures associated with neutrino masses in colliders, cosmology and astrophysics.

**Sonia Pabán **(University of Texas at Austin, USA) – Cosmology

The aim of these four classes is to explain the main ideas of the current cosmology . We begin with a justification for using the Friedmann – Lemaitre-Robertson-Walker metric and study the evolution of the universe in terms of its composition. We will describe the current composition of the universe, including a brief description of dark energy and dark matter . We will present the standard model of cosmology (Λ-CDM model) including: a description of the theory of cosmic inflation, the theory of element formation in the early universe and the creation of the cosmic microwave background.

Description:

The First Peruvian School of High Energy Physics will take place at the Universidad Nacional de Ingeniería in Lima, Peru. The themes of the activity were chosen to impact on a significant number of physics students of this country, whose studies or interests are mostly devoted to the fields of high-energy physics, neutrino physics and cosmology. Three distinguished professors will cover the main subjects of each area giving the participants a general overview and information on the latest results in these fields. Lectures will be given in spanish. There is no registration fee and limited funds are available for travel and local expenses.
